I have installed Microsoft Access in my Web Server, and I made a shortcut that run an application. I want to run that shortcut from my webbrowser is that posible?
I made too a batch file running as cgi, it works, but when the batch file tries to run the shortcut file, simply doesn't do anything.
I want some way to start the application and leave the server running alone without interaction with the client.
Sorry for my bad English, but I'm keep trying.

I'm not clear what it is your trying to do. If you provide a bit more detail then we may be able to help. However shortcuts are not interpreted correctly by IIS as it tries to execute the shortcut data rather than the program that the shortcut points to.

Thank's for your answer.

1. I want to clear what I'm trying to do. I want to run a macro developed in Access (97). This macro CREATE A REPORT and store the resultes in a PDF file in the hard drive. In stand alone mode I don't have problem, the application works well.

2. I installed this macro in the NT 4.0 Server, that has my IIS, including Access, then I try to trigger the macro from my PC using IE.

3. I made then a BATCH file with shortcut in it(shortcut includes to open the access and run  the macro).

4. I configured  the registry to recognize a batch file like CGI. The NT server recognized the batch file. (and works well)

5. I use an instruction like this: "http://www.mysite.com/scripts/report.bat?" (no problems)

6. The batch file ran, BUT, when the line with the instruction to execute the macro shortcut come (report.lnk) , the application does not responde. (error: time out)

7. I only want to start the application (macro) remotely, without intereaction with the user. And leave the application running like if it has been started locally.
